After the tutorial I wrote a few months ago about how to design wreaths using Electric Quilt software, here are a few other ideas to help you draw more complex designs.Even if you don’t have EQ, you can still use some of the principles shown here for drawing your own design on paper.
Let’s start drawing this design ( this is one of my shadow trapunto quilts – you can see other designs here).
Select from the above design just two clusters and remove all the others.Select them, click on the right button of the mouse and select Symmetry / then Clone/ then Flip H
If you want to keep the symmetry of the design, for the next wreaths use a number of clusters divisibles by 4 ( like 4, 8 ,12 …). Don’t use 3 or 5 or 7 clusters.
I reduced the size of the circles wreath.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
If you will design some wreaths, I will be happy to see them. Please send me a picture !
